Serbia are out of the FIFA World Cup after a home draw with neighbours Croatia, who themselves lost ground on Group A leaders Belgium.

Had Croatia held on to the 53rd-minute lead given to them by Mario Mandžukić, they would have remained within three points of Belgium, who they welcome on 11 October in the group decider. But while Aleksandar Mitrović's leveller could not save Serbia's hopes, it has certainly dented Croatia's aspirations of finishing top.
